StreamInsight as a cloud service

The idea of using event processing in "software as a service" mode is not new;  thanks to Marco's Blog,  I came across an article describing the StreamInsights cloud service.  The rationale behind it is that it should be used in cases that it is more cost-effective to customer relative to purchasing expensive hardware needed for processing large volumes of events.    This is part of the general trend to use the cloud for various purposes.  I assume that this will be one of the main ways that event processing will be consumed in the future.
